This event has ended.

Contemporary artist Rei Naito’s work asks us “Is our existence on the Earth a blessing in itself?” This will be her first domestic solo exhibition since 2014 and her larges to date. In this presentation, Naito, who has come to treat light itself as a primary source in her work, creates spaces from natural light alone for the first time. In these spaces we can gaze at “scenes of our earth-bound existence” where light, life, and art cannot be distinguished from one another.
Taking the rich natural light that changes throughout the day as its basis, the exhibition presents itself as both a site of exchange between the deceased, those who will come to be born, the flora and fauna, the spirits, and we who exist on the earth. In line with the artist’s objectives, this exhibition deals exclusively with natural light. Accordingly, starting September 1st the opening hours will change, with the usual closing time of 18:00 shifting to 17:00 (last entry by 16:30).



from July 28, 2018 to October 08, 2018
Until 17:00 after September 1st.
